Sky Woodward, partner in the Washington D.C. office, was quoted in Legal Newsline regarding the disapproval of how class action lawsuits are handled in the United States.

While it may be that the courts are rarely used by the majority of citizens, we have to do a better job of explaining to the public that, whether or not they use them personally, the courts have a direct impact on their lives and livelihoods.”
